You have to understand that this is Daikatana, an expert FPS. You cannot expect to just throw a glance at it and understand it. You must memorise these messages, know them like a true samurai knows the Bushido by heart. Daikatana - it is more than fan fiction about a D&D campaign, it is a way of life. Design is Law.

Let's Play Star Trek Online! It's a game with some bizarre problems (not the least of which: it thinks it's an MMORPG) which, nonetheless, still manages to be fairly entertaining. Q: Wait, Poptarts, you said this was an MMORPG? Isn't Let's Playing an MMORPG kinda stupid? Yeah, it would be-if I considered Star Trek Online to be an MMORPG. It really isn't (or, rather, it is in the same way that Dawn of War II is a real-time strategy game). Honestly, STO is a single-player story-based game where...

Paper Mario was released in North America in 2001 by the developer Intelligent Systems; known for their fantastic WarioWare, Fire Emblem and Advanced Wars series. The game is the first in a series which continued on the Gamecube (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door) and the Wii (Super Paper Mario). The game has been criticized for being ridiculously easy, and it is. I'll be playing the game and commentating with Wogturt. Original Archived Version available at The Let's Play Archive .

Along the way, you also beat the ever-living shit out of hundreds of thugs and yakuza using your hands and whatever you can get your hands on. You can also take time out of your busy...

Nintendo has a very well refined game design process. They take all their old ideas, put them on a bingo board, and play through a round. All the squares that got covered on the winner's bingo sheet end up in the next game they make. Some time ago, this process went wrong, and a rogue employee jammed some new ideas into a Mario game. The game was New Super Mario Brothers on the DS, and it included moving scenery and something likes a physics system. Nintendo knew that the only way to make...

Final Fantasy XII was conceptualized by SquareEnix's Matsuno as part of the Ivalice series of games. Unfortunately due to rumored pressure to get a game out and disputes over such trivial things as the main character, Matsuno left the company for 'health' reasons while FFXII was halfway through development. The result is a game that has some interesting concepts but an inconsistent story and characters. The gameplay itself can be described similarly as interesting with some caveats. The game...

So, what do you suppose you get when you cross Resident Evil 4, Shenmue, and Twin Peaks? The answer took the form of a game released in February of 2010; a low budget survival horror game from a small Japanese studio. Originally known as Rainy Woods in 2007, and given the name Red Seeds Profile upon release in Japan, the version of the game released in America was called Deadly Premonition. Developed by Access Games, and headed up by game director Hidetaka Suehiro (better known as SWERY),...

Dead Space is a game that just kind of happened. Electronic Arts has never been known for releasing survival-horror, and Redwood Studios only did licensed work, like The Godfather and The Simpsons. But somehow, a group of people sat down and said, "We love sci-fi. We love horror. Let's make a survival-horror game in space." And they did. And it was great.

Dormin, having the power to bring back the dead, is approached by the protagonist, Wander, who makes a deal with the entity. If Wander slays sixteen colossi who roam the lands, Dormin will revive a girl, known as Mono, whose body Wander carries with him. However, these colossi are living mountains,...

Donkey Kong 64 is a platformer/collectathon that was released by Rareware for the N64 on Halloween, 1999. It was later rereleased on 12/06/99 packaged with an N64 Expansion Pak, which does all sorts of technical stuff to make the game look really nice. At least, by N64 standards. The game primarily revolves around Donkey Kong and his four other Kong friends and their quest to obtain as many bananas as humanly (simianly?) possible. It is thematically quite similar to Super Mario 64 and the Banjo...

Resident Evil (titled "Biohazard" in Japan) was released on the Playstation in 1996 and was directed by the now-heralded Shinji Mikami. It was one of the very first games to establish the phrase "survival horror." Known for its sluggish controls and bad voice acting, the classic game has now sold over 2.7 million copies. It established the concepts and characters that would stick around all the way to the recent Resident Evil 5, such as Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker and the...

We're playing the re-release of MGS3 that uses a much better camera system and has extra crap. We'll be playing that crap too.

So here we have the game, a now famously-difficult action RPG by From Software. The game is indeed hard, unforgiving, and at times cruel, but I personally never felt that the game was unfair-I know there are likely plenty out there who would disagree. You earn each death just as you earn each accomplishment, and your own experience level and skill with the game will take you much farther than the level of your character ever could. In other words, you can't simply grind your way to victory in...

Beyond Good & Evil was a multi-platform game released in 2003 by Ubisoft and created by Michel Ancel, of Rayman fame. The game was released for the PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, and eventually the PC, which is the version we are playing. BG&E, despite receiving great reviews, sold poorly. The game had very little advertising from Ubisoft and came out the same time many other big name titles did. Within a month of the game's release, its price had been cut from 50 dollars to 20.

When Devil May Cry was released for the Playstation 2 in 2001, it was a resounding success. The action was stylish, and the combat was extremely fun. Anticipation and excitement was high for a sequel that could be as good as, or even better than, the original. But when Devil May Cry 2 was released in 2003, it was a massive disappointment. Completely missing everything that was so great about the original, the game was a completely mediocre affair, leaving a bad taste in the mouths of gamers. If...

Tecmo's Fatal Frame series is one of the most successful and original horror game franchises out there.

The King's Quest Wiki tells many sad stories concerning the eighth entry in the series, including the reason for the lack of a Roman numeral - Roberta Williams didn't want people to associate this travesty with the earlier, good games in the series. Okay, I paraphrase, but the fact remains that this game isn't very good, and Sierra knew it. It abandons everything that the King's Quest series had - interesting stories, challenging puzzles, and the beloved main characters of the royal family of...

What is this? We'll be playing the Nintendo 64 version of Mission: Impossible. This game is based on the 1996 film of the same name, staring Tom Cruise. The game itself was released on July 18, 1998. The game was actually canceled in Japan and delayed for over a year in America. What can I expect from this LP? While we have a limited knowledge of the game and have played through a few early levels, we will largely be flying blind through this LP. A few of us have actually never seen the game...

So what the hell is this? Psychonauts is one of the games that is unimaginatively labeled an "Action-Adventure", but is is so much more. It was created by Double Fine Productions which was founded by Tim Schafer, whom you may (but probably will not) remember from games such as Maniac Mansion, Monkey Island 1 + 2, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango, which all share the virtues of being excellent games and full of mind-bendingly funny humor. Psychonauts continues this...

In 1994, there was Star Trek Generations, a pretty good Trek movie up until the last act, when the plot stops returning making sense's calls, and Captain Kirk shows up in a --in my humble opinion-- completely counterproductive and undesirable last moment of glory. Good movie, but I think cutting out the entire Kirk storyline and the thereby unnecessary time travel parts would've made it far better. But never mind that. Three years after the release of the movie, there was this game, Star Trek...

Way back in the early years of this decade, LucasArts realized that people not only enjoyed Star Wars, which they had happily been making and publishing horrible games about for years, but that they also enjoyed tactical shooters. But then, in a stroke of genius, they realized that many people, and gamers in particular, lack the intelligence to play Rainbow Six or Ghost Recon and so they decided that you, the player, should have as little say in the game's decision making as possible. And so...

Vampire: The Masquerade is an early 90s tabletop Roleplaying Game created by White Wolf studios. In the game, the characters are newly created vampires who discover the dangers of Unlife and must control their inner "beast", the predator's instinct. Wikipedia says: "The game uses the cursed and immortal Vampiric condition as a backdrop to explore themes of morality, depravity, the human condition (or appreciation of the human condition in its absence), salvation, and personal...

The year was 2004. Call of Duty had yet to reach critical mass; Epic Games were still picking out the right shades of brown and grey for Gears of War; and James Bond fans were still licking the wounds of Die Another Day from little over a year previous. EA, in an odd stroke of genius, decided to forgo the idea of making the next interactive Bond adventure another first-person shooter, instead opting to develop Everything or Nothing as a third-person action game, featuring more varied...

Do you remember how FPS games used to be? Remember the timeless classics like Doom, Quake, Daikatana, and the like? Well, forget all that. We're in the modern age, where people have the ability to regenerate themselves at will and the world is constantly being threatened by... something or other. Regardless, this is Modern Warfare 2, successor, obviously, to the 'box-office smash' CoD4: Modern Warfare. Boasting pretty damn good graphics and a storyline that will make you cry one way or another,...

That's right, the bear and bird duo. If you've never heard of this game, it was an extremely successful adventure game on the N64, so much so that most people would agree it surpasses even Mario 64. It spawned three sequels (one to be released later this year) and one spin-off racing game. The story is simple, an evil witch has kidnapped Banjo's sister in order to sap her prettiness and make herself beautiful, and it's our job, as bear-and-bird team, to put a stop to this. I've been a long time...

What is Zork? Zork was one of the first interaction fiction games for the PC. You would type out your instructions the screen, and would get a response saying what then happened. It was entirely text based. How does the gameplay work for this? It's a first person point and click adventure puzzle game. Think Myst. Actually the game is rather similar to Myst in a lot of ways, it just adds a sense of humor to the whole approach. The Zork games are all great, but this is the first one I played, so...

There's no Hartwood family, no Derceto manor, no Cthulhu, and barely any commands. Things it does include! : - Edward Carnby, the barely-plot-related reject character from AitD1! - Pirates! There was a pirate in AitD1! - The same game engine! - Awesome music! - Action! Lots of action! - Really. Lots and lots of action. The game does eventually have a kind of...

Aquaria was released by indie developer Bit Blot in 2007. The game is 2D, nonlinear, exploration, underwater action adventure that is hard to define in terms of genre. The way I explain it to people is "Think Metroid and Cave Story underwater." The main character is Naija, a fish girl who wakes up one day and realizes that she is alone. This leads to her going out on an adventure to discover her past and the secrets of the world of Aquaria. I will be doing 100%, getting all treasures...

When you hear the term 'RPG', you probably think of a game developed in Japan that has a linear story, non-interactive dialog, and lots of menus. The American style of RPG does things differently. They place a big focus on shooting bad guys in the face and making decisions. The Mass Effect series is a prime example of the American style RPG, even if the company that made it happens to technically be Canadian. Our playthrough will mostly normal, with a female character being a jerk at every...

It is a sequel to the game Condemned: Criminal Origins, which was released in 2005 as a launch title for the Xbox 360. Developed by Monolith Studios and published by Sega, Condemned 2 retains the first-person action/horror style of the original Condemned while advancing the story. In fact, this game can be seen as a prototypical sequel. The mechanics of the game are much better, both graphically and...

Castlevania Order of Ecclesia is the third installment of Castlevania titles on the DS. It is an action platformer with RPG elements which revolves around exploration, loot everything there is to loot and vanquish evil while you're at it. Like most recent Castlevania titles it follows the same formula as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I personally like to compare it a lot with Castlevania: Aria/Dawn of Sorrow. Why? Aria of Sorrow introduced the Soul System. Order of Ecclesia has something...

All you need to know this is the greatest shooter in existence, partly due to the physics engine. I'm sure it plays a major role in the fact this game remains a popular online shooter.

In the fall of 2004, Activision released the Raven Software-developed X-Men Legends on multiple platforms. An interesting take on the "comic book game" genre, XML is an action RPG, in which you create 4-person teams from the 14 playable characters, and earn experience and money to increase their abilities. Storywise, the game's focus is on "new" character Alison Crestmere, who is of interest to both the Brotherhood of Mutants and the X-Men. She's mostly just an excuse to...
